Every week? Nice. Although I always forget to claim them lol
Don't confuse funding the development of a game vs moneyhatting a game that is already being developed. Microsoft tried it with Rise of the Tomb Raider and people got angry for good reason.
Change from 1 game every 2 weeks to 1 game per week...
was gaming on a 486, but always appreciate a good "gamer superiority complex" laugh
im genuinely interested in the topic
I'm not fully aware how Octopath Traveler development went, but from the beginning it was announced to be a Switch exclusive. And unless I'm wrong, Nintendo published the game in the west.im genuinely interested in the topic
Games that are time exclusive on a console, are just company that pay them to stay on their console for X amount of time, right? That doesn't mean the cash is going into developping the game, right?
The only exemple i have right now is Octopath Traveler, im pretty sure Nintendo sign a deal to get a 1 year exclusivity, but they didnt finance the game, square enix did.
Isn't it the same thing with Epic buying time exclusive to their store?? Sure i understand why PC gamers are angry because they either have to buy it on a another platform than all their current games is, or they wait for the game to release on steam.
but from a business perspective, Epic have all the rights, right?
btw sorry for my english
